It's a Lovely Day

To eat lunch outside the courthouse. Day One and I am enjoying fulfilling my Civic Duty. Especially because I can eat lunch outside surrounded by beauty and I have enough time for a quick bite and some painting! Ok. So I am the first to admit that I am by no means an artist. I am a crafter. And I'm OK with that.

I brought my water color field kit with me today and one of my purchased Smash Books. I'll admit I don't keep the book as you are intended... Instead I use all of the lovely paper for various other crafty endeavors. (did I mention I'm a paper lover?!) While I LOVE the idea of a smash book I find the brand name ones too lovely and neat. They give me that " I don't want to ruin a pretty perfect page with my slop" anxiety. So my daily journal is still a smash book of sorts made by yours truly.

I've spent the last hour lazily sloping water colors onto a page. It's been quite relaxing and fun. Who knows what I'll use it for. But that's not really important. Just the moment of quiet mindless engulfing color is.

I think I like Jury Duty... Cheers!


  1. neat pictures! I agree. I was at target the other day and I was so tempted to buy a smashbook, but with a book that nice, I feel very pressured for everything to be organized and pristine. haha It's easier to journal in other ways.

  2. it sure is!!! but i just love the paper that comes in them... so i have two, that i take apart... thats ok right?! haha
